Recently in The Washington Times Sen. Orrin Hatch, Utah Republican, sought to chastise Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, for remarks the latter made on the floor of the Senate (“When tough talk roils the decorum of the Senate,” Web, July 28). Mr. Hatch did not name Mr. Cruz in his diatribe, but it was clear to whom he was referring.

War now or later?

Back on Sept. 11, 2001, the existence of a war with radical Islamic terrorism was never more obvious. Today the radical left and misguided liberals believe we can slow-roll the advance of peace by appeasement and delay while these same radical Islamic elements strike us in our homeland and gain strength abroad.

Credit-union business loans are made in the local community and are typically focused on small businesses, churches and real-estate rentals. The average credit union business loan is less than $225,000. During the financial crisis the highest loss rate was less tha one percent.

Deal great for U.S.-hating Iran

President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry have put the United States and other countries in jeopardy by entering into an agreement with Iran which temporarily curbs Tehran's nuclear-armaments program. Either our leaders have been duped or they are naive (or both). Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry are more concerned about their respective legacies than the security of the world.

Amazon Watch an Ecuador advocate

Your July 15, 2015, article about Amazon Watch's ongoing campaign to hold Chevron accountable for its 18-billion-gallon toxic mess in Ecuador omits critical facts and propagates falsehoods ("Amazon Watch still backs Steven Donziger's discredited Chevron lawsuit after others bail," Web).

Mr. Trump speaks his mind and more of what he has been saying should be said across this nation of ours.

Joining military could save lives

The incarceration of thousands of black men in America should not be upstaged by the rash of killings of unarmed black people at the hands of law-enforcement officers across the country.

More Planned Parenthood abhorrence

It's been a tough year for the conservative community in America. We've seen a dismaying Supreme Court decision on gay marriage, liberalization of marijuana laws and more. Yet in the past two weeks we have learned of an issue so revolting that it makes one nauseated: An anti-abortion group, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), published a secretly taped video of a telling discussion with Deborah Nucatola, director of medical services for Planned Parenthood.
